Future First Aiders: 5 to 500!

Let’s train 500 children to be lifesaving Future First Aiders!

Who we are:

Hi! We are Vicki and Kevin Beatty, and five years ago we set up “Vicki Beatty Associates”, a HSE consultancy and training provider  based in Canterbury, Kent. 

Why we’re here:

We had read an article from the European Resuscitation Council  explaining that if children received just 2 hours of CPR training per year, survival rates for sudden cardiac arrest alone dramatically increased. If we taught children first aid, we could actually help to make a difference. 

How we’re doing it:

So this year we created “Future First Aiders”, a Community Interest Company and training programme to teach children vital lifesaving first aid skills. 

We have been providing the training in schools and academies across Kent, funded by business sponsorship. The scheme has been really well received, so we want to spread the enthusiasm further!

What next?

To celebrate our 5th year of trading, we have pledged to provide first aid training to 500 children in 2016. We’re calling this: “Future First Aiders: 5 to 500!” 

The training costs £2 for each child, which covers course materials and Kevin’s teaching time. Each child also receives a certificate on completion of the programme.

See more on our Facebook  page, Twitter  feed, and website  for more. 

Please help us to reach our £1000 target by sponsoring a child for £2 today!

Thank you!
